Welcome to Simply Emmy!

Welcome to Simply Emmy! Simply Emmy is just like it sounds- simply my reflections and musings that come from my true self- Emmy! As I get older, I have come to the realization that self-awareness and self-acceptance are key to happiness and have allowed me to feel confident to share my unique gifts with the world. I've always loved to write but the little voice inside my head- you know that voice- the shadow of self-doubt, or what Brené Brown calls the "gremlins"- always held me back. Because who do I think I am writing a blog and who is going to read it anyway? 

The ground rules of Simply Emmy are simple:
1) No judgement- treat myself as I would my best friend. Acknowledge the gremlins and kindly ignore them.
2) Share what I know and explore what I want to learn.
3) Don't always feel like you have to put three things in a list! Perfection is completely overrated.

I look forward to the journey.

“Insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life's cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another you have only an extemporaneous half possession. That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him.”
